, when he came to the u.s., he worked as a community organizer, which is a socialized structure. >> right. well, despite the president being a kenyan indonesian pot smoking communist, a republican general has to endorse him because they're the same color. they're brothers from another mother. it couldn't possibly be that a former secretary of state actually put some thought into his endorsement, could it? >> not only am i not comfortable with what governor romney is proposing for his economic plan, i have concerns about his views on foreign policy. sometimes i don't sense that he has thought through these issues as thoroughly as he should have and he gets advice from his campaign staff that he then has to adjust or modify as he goes along. >> are you sure that general powell is saying it's because the president is black? i'm just not hearing that. >> there are other issues as well, not just the economy and foreign policy. i'm more comfortable with president obama and his administration when it comes to issues like what are we going to do about climate? what are we going to do about immigr

the consequences of a powerful storm of historic proportions. in sandy's wake at least 28 are dead in the u.s. dozens of homes lost to fire or swept to sea. mass transit stalled, and some 8 million without power. the president has been hunkered down at the white house declaring states of emergency, working with governors, and helping to coordinate relief efforts. just an hour ago he traveled to the headquarters of the red cross pledging for support for what's expected to be a lengthy recovery. >> my message to the federal government, no bureaucracy, no red tape, get resources where they're needed as fast as possible, as hard as possible, and for the duration because the recovery process obviously in a place like new jersey is going to take a significant amount of time. >> indeed. the president will travel to hard-hit new jersey tomorrow, and just a week from election day the president's challenger was hardly content to sit on the sidelines. for his part, mitt romney tried to turn an ohio campaign rally into a relief rally. collecting donations for storm victims with a viewing of his campaign

of the campaign, he'd take advantage of it. so i hope president obama will, you know, use those openings to press him on some of these things. i think as you saw joe biden do during the vice presidential debate. let's talk about iran or syria or afghanistan. are we talking about more troops on the ground because a majority of americans don't want that, and so -- he's basically saying he wants to do everything obama has basically done, and so i hope obama really presses him to say what else would you do because i don't think he has an answer and he certainly can't say i will commit to troops which dan tried to walk away from on the "today" show. >> remarkably show. dana, iran and not russia remains this planet's number one geopolitical foe. the president has corralled an international coalition, sanctions are devastating the iranian economy. tell me something that mitt romney would do in relation to iran that the president has not done. tell me, dana. >> well, martin, he can start a war, and we -- >> that's right. he can start a war. >> it's been a while since we had a good war. >> not for ten yea
. let me make this comment. >> nope. come on, mr. president, give us a peek under the hood. >> five week before the election he's saying that his big, bold idea is never mind. is the reason that governor romney is keeping all these plans to replace secret because they're too good? is it because that somehow middle class a families are going to benefit too much? ♪ i guess you're just what i needed ♪ >>> we begin with the president criticized as being less than effective last night by hyperventilating pundits across the board, but now getting his own chance to put a spin on the first presidential debate. fresh off last night's face-off, the president is hitting the trail in key swing states. he's just touched down in madison, wisconsin, for a rally within the hour. >>> and earlier this afternoon the president described his own complete and utter surprise at the man he met last night. >> when i got onto the stage, i met this very spirited fellow who claimed to be mitt romney. >> yes, followers of this broadcast will be very familiar with the many variations on the man known as willard m
. and that is why with 21 days to go, the president must use this debate to shatter the mythical mitt romney who is chas currenty entranced the voters. case in point, romney's alleged plan to create 12 million jobs through those proven pro-growth policies. guess what? they're not proven at all, none of it is. in fact, "the washington post" fact checker today gives the most essential claim of romney's campaign four pinocchios. its equivalent of a pants on fire lie. calling even the most reliable of the numbers highly conditional. fact checker glen kessler writes simply, this is a case of bait and switch. bait and switch. doesn't that sound familiar? kind of like the guy who pushed through the model for individual mandates and a civilized plan for statewide health care coverage now suggesting that emergency rooms are the answer for the uninsured. >> that's the most expensive way to do it. in the emergency room. >> again, different states have different ways of doing that. some provide that care through clinics. some provide the care through emergency rooms. >> yes, and for some it's too late. that
opinionnessgoodness. >> governor romney took another stab at trying to sell us that $5 trillion tax cut. he took another swing and he whiff. >> i'm not familiar with precisely what i said but i stand by what i said whatever it was. ♪ i've been everywhere, man >> just 19 days until the election, and it is a full-court press on the campaign trail today. the president landed just 90 minutes ago at new york's john k. kennedy airport d f. kennedy. it's part of a hectic day for the president who will face off against mitt romney once again tonight, this time on not with factual corrections, but with comedic zingers at the alfred e. smith dinner. earlier today it was up to battleground new hampshire with a massive crowd on a gorgeous fall day to get in some early jabs at his republican rival. >> on tuesday governor romney took another stab at trying to sell us this $5 trillion tax cut that favors the wealthy. he took another swing at it and he whiffed. he said i'll let you know after the election. i'm going to let you in on a little tip. when a politician tells you he's going to wait until after the
. i know the president hopes for a safer, freer, and more prosperous middle east allied with us. i share this hope, but hope is not a strategy. >> but even after today's tenth major foreign policy address by mr. romney, questions remain about how he would conduct american policy toward the rest of the world. how about libya? >> in the libya i'll support the libyan people's efforts to forge a lasting government that represents all of them, and i'll vigorously pursue the terrorists who attacked our consulate in benghazi and killed our fellow americans. >> okay. now that he's both favored and deposed intervention in libya, he'll defiantly claim his position is exactly the same as the president. great. how about iran? >> i'll put the leaders of iran on notice that the united states and our friends and allies will prevent them from acquiring nuclear weapons capability. >> i wish someone would ask how that's different from the president. oh, wait, someone did. >> what is your red line with iran? >> well, my red line is iran may not have a nuclear weapon. >> president obama said exactly t
a long time for us to clean up. >> and with that lengthy cleanup in mind, the president was asked about the potential impact on the quickly approaching election. >> the election will take care of itself next week. right now our number one priority is to make sure that we are saving lives, that our search and rescue teams are going to be in place, that people are going to get the food, the water, the shelter they need in case of emergency and that we respond as quickly as possible to get the economy back on track. >> as for mitt romney, he and paul ryan have canceled events tonight and tomorrow, but earlier in ohio governor romney did extend his concern and sympathy. >> on the eastern coast of our nation a lot of people are enduring some very difficult times, and our hearts and our prayers go to them. >> indeed. prayers are always important, but even more so if romney were to become president since prayer and the private sector would take the place of the federal emergency management agency as he stated in a tea party debate last year. >> fema is about to run out of money and there are s
pakistan cliff notes, his atlas of sub-saharan frsk africa, his vac with us campaign and spend the rest of his days at his beach house reading binders of remorse. we have julian epstein, jonathan capehart, and here with me in new york, msnbc political analyst jonathan alter, a columnist for the bloomberg view. john capehart, if i can start with you, in the first debate mr. romney was antagonistic. in the second debate much more friendly to the president. in the third debate he became the president, agreeing with virtually everything that the commander in chief said. that debate, that wasn't a debate. that was political osmosis. >> it was incredible. as i wrote today, what a waste of time. at a certain point i began to feel like i either was listening to them in stereo or sitting in an echo chamber. mitt romney, who has campaigned on a whole lot of issues, foreign policy issues, suddenly -- >> john, i'm sorry to interrupt you -- john, i'm sorry to interrupt you, you said it was a waste of time. how can it possibly be a waste of time when a candidate for president of this country is expos
you in his office. joining us right now, let's get to our panel here in denver, mike shira, "time" magazine, white house correspondent, who has the cover story in this week's issue. john harwood, cnbc chief white house correspondent, and holding it down in new york city, msnbc political analyst karen finney. john, are you there in the spin room. as you know, the spinning begins before either candidate has spoken. we've seen both parties attempt to deflate expectations. but isn't the biggest challenge for mitt romney, not what he plans to say tonight, but how he explains what he's already said, in particular, his derision for 47% of the people in this country? >> reporter: certainly, martin, he's going to have to address that and try to diffuse that issue. look, this is an incredibly important event in the campaign. tens of millions of people will watch these two guys standing side by side. mitt romney is behind, but behind by three points. he could still win this race. he's got to figure out a way to both hurt obama, help himself, make credible arguments his economic plan will mak
and transparent and that has been used for decades in terms of computing the employment numbers. and, you know, this is to democrats this is music to our ears. when you start complaining about the polls and you start complaining about employment number methodology, it's a very, very clear sign that the other side is losing the debate and they have to go to these kind of, you know, bush league tactic that is don't persuade anybody and, you know, this is very, very good news for us. it's a big sign these guys are losing the debate. >> before i ask you a question, john, i need to explain that the poltergeist has actually taken john harwood from us so he's not here. but the job numbers were accurate when they were above 8%, but the moment they went below, they are fraudulent and part of a conspiracy run by the mafia in chicago. >> it's one thing for al alen west, a whack job congressman from florida, and other donald trump-type conspiracy theorists on the fringe to be buy into this nonsense but it was really disturbing when jack welch, who was a tremendously effective ceo of general electric for m
it comes to the etiology of romnesia one of the major factors for causation appears to be a vac with us outlook without any convictions whatsoever aside from a strong sens of entitlement. two weeks to the election, will the american public elect a man just because he's a millionaire and he wants the job? >> well, it's a serious case that you have diagnosed, so we have to get into the details. there's the old saying that the problem with political jokes is that sometimes they get elected. mitt romney is a joke, and barack obama, who looked in great form out there, looked like he's having fun, is doing something really important here, which is taking these series of changes and hypocrisies and really making light of it. what makes something funny? what can jay leno or david letterman joke about? only things where everyone understands the punch line. as you documented on this show, people know that mitt romney doesn't have a firm position. people watch the debates and saw him basically end with this closing argument, don't worry, i'm different than i used to be. it's not a very aggressive
people did, it's time for us to cut back on goth. >> yes, romney's been limbering up all year for this moment, and the president, too, shaping up. fop that end he's retooled his stump speech to reflect the new-found agility of his challenger. last night in columbus, drawing attention to what the new /old will admit is suddenly sweepi i under the rug. >> mitt romney decided instead of changing his plan, he just pretended it didn't exist. what $5 trillion tax cut? i don't know anything about a $5 trillion tax cut. pay no attention to that tax cut under the carpet. >> now, that was the president waxing incredulous while former president bill clinton last night, well, he went full clintonian, painting the picture of how mitt's transformation went down. >> the deal was made by severe conservative mitt. that's how he described himself. for two whole years. until three or four days before the debate they got together and said, hey, this ship is sinking faster than the titanic so show up with a sunny face and say, i didn't say all that stuff i said the last two years. you going to bel
over a half a million manufacturing jobs and china has passed us in manufacturing. i'll stand up to china. i have a detailed plan to create 12 million new jobs, including producing our own energy in the ground, in ohio. >> i'm so glad you brought that up, mr. romney. let's talk about that now. your jobs plan. let's do it. let's get right to our panel. here in new york msnbc political analyst david corn, author of the new book "47%", richard walls, one of my many bosses and in washington, karen finney. richard, i have to put this to you. romney says he will create 12 million jobs by cutting taxes across the board by 20% -- >> he's not going to cut taxes. >> hang on, which economists said cal cates to about $5 trillion but romney now says he won't cut taxes at 20% across the board and it won't accumulate $5 trillion in that sense. so is romney a presidential candidate or a ventriloquist? >> well, he's certainly a great debater with himself, right? because that would be a very interesting argument, the guy who promises tax cuts but says there are no tax cuts. a guy who says we shoul
's a guy that used to exist. >> right. >> i was going to say the other way to go at this, too, president obama has a record that he should be proud of that he can point to and then let's look at what the romney record is because at some point, you know, you've got two guys saying, you know, pick me, pick me, well, let's look at what they've done. >> karen, there is no romney record. i keep telling you -- >> oh, yes, there is. yes, there is. when he was the head of bain, what happened? people lost everything. while he made money. when he was governor of massachusetts, how did he govern? he did some outsourcing of call centers to india, i believe. he believed that, you know, his numbers got better in terms of unemployment because people left the state. so again, i think there are -- whether he likes it or not, there are a few bread crumbs to talk about. >> julian, the president might take some pointers from chris wallace who didn't let ed gillespie get away with his claims that independent studies prove romney's mythical and magical tax plan. take a list be to this. >> one is a blog from a

. whatever they used to be in terms of ideological coherence to republicans and conservatives in general, mitt romney just blew it up. >> indeed. we saw the endorsements for the president over mr. etch-a-sketch, but doug brinkley's piece offers a quite different view. can i quote, obama must be judged by the things he won't allow to happen on his watch. wall street thieving, bush-style nis c fiscal irresponsible, the reversal of roe v. wade. if he loses romney and ryan will crush his initiatives without remorse. that's right, isn't it? if you're a young person who is currently covered by health care, you can kiss that good-bye. if you're a young person who is relying on pel grants, you can kiss that good-bye. >> if you take mitt romney at his word, there's no way the industry will accept it unless you have a mandate which he also dislikes. his promises or at least the things he says he likes doesn't stack up with what he says he will deliver. to doug's point, if you think the reforms that this president and the last congress enacted are going to stop wall street thieving, you're smoking
's performance last week. so you tell us, how does the 69-year-old political veteran tame the 42-year-old young gun tonight? >> well, i think he has to remind the people in the middle who are going to make the decision that this is about two very different points of view about the future of the country. the great thing about running against paul ryan is he has real beliefs. he believes we should get rid of medicare as we know it and tell 82-year-old people to go out and buy health insurance if they can find somebody to sell it to them. go get on the bus and find somebody to sell you a health insurance policy when you're 82. he believes in a fertilized second the second after conception is a person with the rights of life, liberty, and property. well, god help the mother. it's an amazing situation. people with very drastic pro-life views, drastic views about putting safety net programs, at the same time wanting to get rid of cap gain taxes, get rid of estate taxes, lower the corporate rate and the individual rate. shift all the money to the top while taking away the economic rights of people at
